Hands-on Experience with High Performance Horses
Advancing the veterinary student experience through community engagement in high performance equine care
Veterinary students studying equine medicine graduate with excellent scientific and diagnostic training, but they don’t get much hands-on experience caring for and handling high performance horses. This project, conceived with the team at John Madden Sales, explores the possibility of filling this training gap and better preparing students to enter this field of practice. The project team is collecting data to inform the development of a pilot industry immersion experience for equine-track veterinary students entering the final phase of their studies.
